Much like the Dynasty Warriors series, Hyrule Warriors lets players beat up enemies as heroes and villains. For the first time in a Zelda game, Ganondorf from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a playable character. Players can also choose Zant, the King of Darkness from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
Zant is armed with curved blades, a maniacal laugh, and and the ability to warp Twilight Monsters onto the battlefield.
Hyrule Warriors comes out on Japan for Wii U this Thursday.
